Editorial Reviews


Love & Rockets has been American fiction's best-kept secret. -- Rolling Stone

A high point in the comics form, conventional in idiom, but not comparable to any strips before it. -- Washington Post

If you've never heard of Gilbert and Jaime Hernandez, you've been missing out on hidden treasures of our impoverished culture. -- The Nation

Jaime's Maggie and Gilbert's Luba are two of the great characters in contemporary American fiction. -- LA Weekly

The Hernandez Brothers are uncanny. No other man in or out of the field understands women the way they do. -- Trina Robbins, author of A Century of Women Cartoonists

Format: Paperback
Readers of Gilbert H.'s fiction occasionally accuse him of lifting the slightly "mystic small town" aesthetic associated with writers such as Gabriel Garcia Marquez or william Faulkner, and not without good reason. I won't go into detail why this is one of my favorite books of all time, but I would like to know where Gilbert got his ideas, especially the bellybutton fixation and the walnut cracking.

I guess when i started reading these i liked the l.a. stories better than the mexican ones, and wanted them to be all about hispanic life in l.a. Over time though the characters in the mexican stories started to become better. Plus luba's got big boobs.
